Columnist
Drew Jacob formerly blogged about polytheism, heroism and travel at Rogue Priest. Today, under the name Andre Sólo, he is the co-founder of Highly Sensitive Refuge, where he writes about highly sensitive people; the COO of Introvert, Dear, where he writes about introverts; and the author of Lúnasa Days, a tale of magical realism set at the end of the age of American prosperity. As a polytheist, he believes that good religion requires not just a plurality of gods, but a plurality of theologies, voices, and viewpoints.
